Hey guys,

Well I recently ordered an OEM version CPU from NewEgg, http://www.newegg.com/app/viewprodu...-103-394&DEPA=0 , an Athlon XP 3000+ Barton.

I got the CPU, and looked at the model # and it indeed had the 3000 within the model number. The problem is when I put it in and loaded the system, it only says itís an 2200+ in the load up screen. I updated my BIOS on my motherboard and still reads 2200+. My motherboard DOES support the Athlon XP 3000+ as it says in the manual and on their site. Did I receive the wrong CPU, or are any of my settings wrong that it's only reading 2200+?

I did download wcpuid and it reads as the namestring Athlon XP 2200+. I am beginning to think that I may have received the wrong CPU.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

P.S. FSB is 166 x 13.0 and still reads 2200+.
